Transicold says its Vector 8500 is lighter and more efficient than the previous model.


Carrier Transicold will be showing off its Vector 8500 single-temperature hybrid trailer refrigeration unit at May’s Brisbane Truck Show.

The company claims the unit delivers significantly reduced weight, improved fuel economy and greater refrigeration capacity.

Compared with the unit it succeeds, the new Vector 8500 weighs 95kg less.

Besides a drop in weight, it provides up to 4 per cent higher cooling capacity but consumes up to 26 per cent less fuel over a full range of operating conditions.

"Innovative improvements in efficiency allow individual components, such as the engine, to use less energy while producing greater results – all in a system configuration that remains familiar to owners of prior Vector equipment," Carrier Transicold Australia marketing manager Kelly Geddes says.

The 820kg, Tier 4-compliant model includes the company’s E-Drive technology, 4 cylinder 2.2 litre smart diesel engine, APX electronic control module, fully hermetic electric scroll compressor, 21 kVA generator and 40-amp battery charger.
